Images of The QUEEN and Historical British Symbols BURNED by Irish Nationalists

Irish Nationalists burned an image of the Queen along with a number of other British symbols on a bonfire in Derry last night. 

Local media were filled with reports of various sectarian incidents linked to a Catholic religious holiday widely celebrated in the region.

On and off sectarian violence has been a feature of Northern Ireland for hundreds of years, since it was settled by the British in the early 1600s, with the 1998 Good Friday agreement establishing peace through the implementation of a power-sharing agreement between pro-Irish Nationalist Catholic communities and pro-British Unionist protestant communities.

According to the Irish Independent, the image of the Queen was burned alongside union flags, at least one Israeli flag, poppy wreaths, and one image of a Land Rover belonging to the PSNI, the local police force.
